Mr. Baldwin came to Watertown at an early day, and married Charlotte, eldest daughter of Timothy Johnson, the first white settler here. In 1844 he removed to Iowa and nine years later went to Kansas where he remained up to the time of his death.., [Watertown Republican, Watertown, Wisconsin.]

He was born in New York. As an adult he made his way westward to Wisconsin. He was mentioned in a personal narrative of a Wisconsin pioneer named Luther Cole. Mr. Cole described that he, Philander Baldwin, and another man took passage at Grand Haven, Michigan and reached Chicago after "a sail of about twenty-four hours." From there they traveled on foot two or three days and arrived at Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 10 May 1836.
